Stong leadership, opportunities for collaboration with peers and blended learning opportunities. My highschool has offered many opportunities for me to learn at an advanced level to prepare me for higher learning. I also participated in athletics all four of my years at South Johnston High School. My coaches were great role models for me and helped me to build character and perserverance. My teachers guided and supported me in all of my years of high school and encouraged me to always strive to do my best. I have made great friend and built long lasting relationships with many. My highschool is community focused and everyone always pulls together to support one another in all causes. I am proud to have been a part of this school.

South Johnston was an amazing high school for me. The teachers really helped me grow, not only academically, but as a person. I can truly say that this school made me who I am today. They provided me with so many opportunities, such as their CCP program and their distance learning program. They have so many different programs to fit each students' needs. However, I wish they had given me the opportunity to take more AP credit courses. They only offer a handful and that is the only thing I felt as if I missed out on while being a student at South Johnston High School.
South Johnston is a public high school offering lots of independence and amazing opportunities. At South Johnston, you are expected to excel. Our principal, Dr. David Pierce starts each freshman class with these words, "the only way to fail at South Johnston is to fail yourself." This is true, because there are so many resources in place to help you succeed and there are also lots of advanced classes like AP and classes through the local community college. There are so many programs at this school, it is nearly impossible to not fit in.
